Heures des Jeunes Chretiens.

Paris: Marcilly, (c. 1830). 127pp. A beautiful little book of hours for young people, with engraved title and five plates, the most charming showing David dancing and playing his harp, as he leads the procession of the Ark. Contains the Order of the Mass and various services in French, and hymns and prayers in Latin. Ends with the service for marriage, rather than the service for the dead, as was customary in older books of hours. Fine in green roan, with gilt floral rolls to spine and bordering both covers. The slipcase matches in color and gilt decoration. Minor rubbing to exterior, else fine. A.e.g. (Welsh 3300). (2 7/16 by 1 13/16; 68x47mm). Item #28346
